What’s a Little Wager Among Friends?

LSU’s Guice, other top backs have a standing bet.

NCAA Football: Citrus Bowl-Louisiana State vs Louisville Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Seems Ohio State running back Mike Weber was feeling a little chesty on twitter this week...

To the surprise of none who actually follow Derrius Guice on twitter — he definitely has to search for himself a few times a day — he and Penn State’s Saquon Barkley were both in.

Barkley led all three players in total rushing yards and touchdowns in 2016 with 1,496 yards and 18 scores — although Guice had the edge in yards per game with 115.5 to Barkley’s 106.8. Weber just barely cracked the 1,000-yard mark at 1,096 and nine scores. Although it’s easy to project more yardage for him in 2017 without Curtis Samuel around.

Although Guice won’t have to split carries with Leonard Fournette, either.
